Test days.

Today I am grateful for test days.

Yes, when students take tests it means I have to grade them, but while they are taking the tests, I can actually get a lot done. Today, I:

  • Cleaned my desk
  • Filed papers that had been piling up for weeks
  • Started building a pile of things I’ll need when I lose my room to construction in a week
  • Readied another test for next week
  • Graded a stack of papers
  • Finished a recommendation letter
  • Read some newspaper stories

I get two more test days next week when students take a district reading test, and I’m sure I’ll be grateful for those days too.
